Family Discipleship

We believe that God has designed parents to be the primary disciplers of their children.  Deuteronomy 6:5-7 says, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

In the New Testament, Paul instructs parents to bring up their children in the training and instruction of the Lord (Eph. 6).  Therefore, it is the job of the church not to usurp parents, but to support and equip them in this role.  The following resources are generously provided by The Village Church to aid you in that calling.
